Close the Door on Fear (Written By: Joel Osteen)

“Do not give the   devil an opportunity to work.”
(Ephesians 4:27,   ISV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
So many people today are   living with less than God’s best because they’ve allowed fear to creep in and   take root in their lives. Fear is the greatest weapon the enemy uses to try   to hold us back. Fear is not from God. Scripture tells us that fear brings   torment. It’s designed to paralyze us and keep us from God’s blessings.

The good news is that God is   greater than fear. His power in you is greater than any power that comes   against you. But, in order to walk in His power, you have to close the door   on the enemy. See, the enemy can’t have access to your life unless you open a   door and give him access. That’s why we have to be careful about what we   watch, what we listen to, what we read, and what we say. When we open ourselves   to fear, we give the enemy opportunity.

If you’ve allowed fear to   steal from you in any area of life, today you can be free — you can be   finished with fear. Conquering the enemy starts by making the choice to close   the door on fear by receiving God’s love and meditating on His promises.   Receive His truth and speak His truth. Let Him set you free and lead you into   victory as you close the door on fear.

Father, I come to   You in faith declaring that I am finished with fear. Thank You for giving me   a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. Fill me with Your peace and joy   today as I worship You and move forward in Your victory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel &   Victoria Osteen
